color swatch :: grandma’s couch

For Design Production Team we had to create a new ink color palette of four colors and then design a marketing campaign for the palette.  We created grandma’s couch; inspired by patterns of the 60’s and 70’s.  I collaborated with Justin Stier on the ads and he created the patterns for both.  Enjoy!  Critiques always welcome.

Ceremony Program

Just too keep you all posted, here is the front of the ceremony program for my wedding, THIS SATURDAY!!  I am getting so excited, nothing like finishing it at the last minute.  The polka dots were inspired from the motifs we used on the save-the-dates, invites, and candy favor boxes.  It is also in a honeycomb design because the favor is a honey jar.  Enjoy, I’m printing them tomorrow so there isn’t much room for changes, but for my portfolio I can change things a little, let me know what you think!

Pop Ups— a history and brief overview.


This was created for 3D design for a presentation on Pop Ups, whether they are books, pamphlets, business cards, greeting cards, etc.  I created the background and formatted it myself, and gathered information with my group.

Wear Me- In Progress

I am working on a “t-shirt drawer box” for package design.  These are the wraps.  The top will just be the the broken green bar to the wear me, and then the sides will the the repeating recycle signs.  The edges will wrap under to the bottom of the box.  Still working out the kinks with the slide out drawer template, mock up photos soon!  The rest of the color choices are on my flickr photostream.

K&A— Announcement

Today I created a wedding announcement for Kristin an awesome girl I work with!  She liked the idea of a peacock feather, but wanted bright colors, originally her flowers were going to be bright pinks and oranges so I thought I’d do a non-traditional peacock feather for her, and this is what I came up with, and she loves it!  =)

My first book!

Today I decided to tackle the task that’s been hanging over my head… creating the guestbook for our wedding.  Since I couldn’t find one that fit the feel of our wedding perfectly I figured that since I like to think I’m crafty I could do it myself, so I did!  And it was a SUCCESS!!  =D  I got all of the materials at The Paper Source they have bookmaking kits with directions and then you choose your colors and assemble!  I thought it was going to be way more difficult the directions were long and scary, but it turned out to be not that bad.  Then I added the label on the front, I printed the navy and embossed the white heart.  I think it turned out darling!  I wanted a smaller guestbook with no lines so our guests could write us a little memory instead of ending up with just a list of names, I think that’s kind of boring and a memory is more fun!

Never Sleep

Going to curl up and continue reading Never Sleep:  Graduating into Graphic Design by dress code.  I’m thinking a mix of Jason Mraz, Eric Hutchinson, and Matt Nathanson?  Sounds good to me.  =)
